National Biodiesel Board Preparing for 10th Annual Conference

National Biodiesel Board

The National Biodiesel Board is gear­ing up for its tenth National Biodiesel Con­fer­ence & Expo Feb­ru­ary 4–7 in Las Vegas. One of the key top­ics of dis­cus­sion will be what hap­pened on New Year’s Day news from Wash­ing­ton – the $1 per gal­lon tax credit for B100 fuel would be extended through 2013 – and applied retroac­tively for 2012.

For­mer Sen­a­tor Byron Dor­gan is the keynote speaker on Wednes­day, Feb­ru­ary 6. He’s well known for his pas­sion for domes­ti­cally pro­duced renew­able energy is stronger than ever, accord­ing to the NBB. Also in Las Vegas, NBB will cel­e­brate its 20th anniver­sary as an asso­ci­a­tion. The NBB 2013 con­fer­ence and trade show will take place at the Mirage Hotel.

“The con­fer­ence serves as a spring­board for the indus­try, as pro­duc­tion and mar­ket demand tend to rise sharply soon after,” NBB pres­i­dent Joe Jobe says on the meet­ing web­site. “We rou­tinely hear from exhibitors that the deals made at this event affect their bal­ance sheets all year long. Demo­graph­ics show most of our atten­dees are high-level deci­sion mak­ers in their fields. Those who reach them first will be two steps ahead of their competitors.”
